From Hamden Hall Country Day School

The Hamden Hall Experience starts with academic excellence as enhanced by our dynamic learning environment and fostered by our esteemed faculty. Our core values - excellence, support, participation, accountability, and respect - are interwoven in that overarching experience and are integral to the academic growth and success of every student.

From the school's notable beginnings in 1912 as the nation's fourth country day school to its current standing as a hallmark of excellence, Hamden Hall continues to embrace the spirit of family and community that has defined the campus since its opening days.

Our first priority is offering a rigorous curriculum that challenges students academically. But our involvement in our students’ well-being and preparation for the world beyond our halls doesn’t end there. We also care about our students and the adults they become.

We are a PreSchool through Grade 12 community.
